Balance and Fall Prevention

Balance is a critical part of every person's daily life and most of us take it for granted until we begin to lose it.  We also assume that it is something we have no control of.  We are just born with it or not.  Well actually we do have the ability to improve our balance in a significant way.  Our Balance Training Services can help you either regain the balance you once had or improve your balance to even higher levels.  We utilize various equipment and exercises to train you to the level that you want to achieve whether it is for basic walking ability or to improve your abilities as an athlete. 

Fall Prevention is a critical concern for the elderly.  Did you know that " more than 95% of hip fractures among adults ages 65 and older are caused by falls (Grisso et al. 1991)? These injuries can cause severe health problems and lead to reduced quality of life and premature death (Wolinsky et al. 1997; Hall et al. 2000). (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). 

Therefore, if you have already had a fall or are realizing that you are losing your balance, then you should consider coming in to see how we can assist you in preventing a future fall and more importantly the injury that may come from it.  It may save your life. ( As many as 20% of hip fracture patients die within a year of their injury) (Leibson et al. 2002). (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ).
